End of an Era

Well, here we go again. Moving. This will be the 11th time Joel and I have moved in our 8 1/2 yrs of marriage. This one is a bit different- this move is not our choice.
We've lived in this rental for the last 3 1/3 yrs. It is the only house our elder son remembers (even though it is the 5th place he's lived), and of course the same for our youngest- since we came here when he was 3 weeks old. So it's the hardest to leave. We love it, we've invested time, work, money into this home. We're sad to leave. But, as the owners need to live here (this whole economy thing is lame), we need to leave.
Now what?? We have over a month (they tried hard to give as much notice as possible), but it seems like no time at all. Where do we go? We don't have money to buy- rent prices have gone up- our family is too big for most places now...... Please pray for us- we need it!

On the upside- really, since it had to happen, I am so glad it happened now. Another month, and the time crunch b/w SS, the baby, and everything else would have been way too much. The timing works. (If I can just squeeze out knitting time to get these designs done as well....)
And, a funny thing--- DD has been saying ever since she found out I am pregnant "I can't wait to go to our new house!! When do we get to go to the new house?!". We kept saying we weren't going to a new house...... Out of the mouths of babes, huh? But then, why wouldn't she think that? We've moved with every pregnancy. Usually twice, but I'm trying really hard to forget that part.....
Back to packing.....
